Anyhoo' I popped out at about 11.30pm and the place was crawling in slugs and snails! My herb garden is surrounded by concrete, so I was quite surprised to see so many of the little shits!
I began gathering them up into a jar, but had to go and get a bucket, as clearly all the slugs and snails were not going to fit in the jar.
Off of 6 containers outside I picked up 14 snails, and 11 slugs!!!!
I tossed some salad into the bucket with the slugs and snails, and placed a cover over the top.
Next day I took the dog for a walk and took my bucket of snails with the plan to release them in thick undergrowth away from my home. I took them across 3 roads and tipped he bucket into a nice patch of weeds and nettles.
Only thing was all the slugs and snails were all still attached to the bucket and I had to pick each one out one-by-one and put them in the nettles. By this time the bucket was full of this watery slime and although I actually find snails cute, I was really wanting to heave!
I was also getting a lot of strange looks, as I had decided to release the snails during the peak time for people walking their kids to school!
